Bible Reading:

Mark 10:46-52 (NIV)

46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging.

47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.”

50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.

51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

52 “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

In life there are oppositions everywhere. Once you by to do something good, there would be oppositions to stop you.

If you think that you cannot have oppositions because you don’t have enemies, then you are being ignorant. Proverbs 14:20 says:

The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends. No one would have thought that Bartimaeus would have so many enemies until he began to cry for light.

Some people are just not comfortable when they see others succeeding, so they want to bring them down.

Like Bartimaeus, you must never allow them to stop you from achieving your goal. It doesn’t matter what they say or do to keep you low, keep doing all you can to succeed.

If you don’t let them keep you low, when you succeed, they will be the first to celebrate with you.

After you have overcome the oppositions that tried to keep you low, as you begin to succeed, your enemies would increase.

This is only natural. Your enemies are few when you have nothing but when you live in a mansion and have more than one car in your house, you will need more protection.

Whether the devil likes it or not, you will prosper and increase. The plan of God for your life is for you to excel and that plan will be fulfilled, in Jesus’ name.

The oppositions I faced when I became a Pastor are different from the ones I faced when I became the General Overseer of the Church.

The higher you go, the bigger the oppositions will be. This is not to frighten you, but to prepare you for reality.

When you know that you will have many oppositions, you will be prepared to fight so the enemy cannot surprise you.

The higher a building is, the deeper the foundation that must be built to carry it. The time I spent in prayer when I was just a Pastor in the Church is little compared to how many hours I spend in prayer now as the General Overseer.

If you want to get to the highest level in Wei then you must be willing to go to the deepest level in God.
